Public Policy Institute of California
This edition of the PPIC (Public Policy Institute of California) Statewide Survey is the sixth in a series of surveys funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation focusing on K-12 education issues. Its goal is to inform state policymakers, encourage discussion, and raise public awareness about a variety of K-12, higher education, environment, and population issues. Findings are based on a survey of 2,504 California adult residents. Some findings of the current survey are: (1) 62 percent of Californians are very concerned the state budget gap will cause significant spending cuts in K-12 education; (2) Three-fourths (74%) of Californians say that improving education should be a high priority for the next governor; and (3) Governor Schwarzenegger's job approval rating of 24 percent matches his record low, while President Obama's approval rating stands at 61 percent.
